The cable meets international and military specifications such as the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) 12G-SDI standard.

NEWARK, Del. – W. L. Gore & Associates in Newark, Del., is introducing GORE coaxial cables for use with remote-controlled turret cameras, local situation awareness, and other video-generating sensor systems aboard manned and unmanned land vehicles.

The coaxial cable is smaller and lighter than previous offerings, yet capable of transmitting ultra-high-definition (UHD) 4K video with excellent shielding from radio frequency interference.

The cable meets internationally recognized civil and military specifications, including the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) 12G-SDI standard.

Published in March 2015, 12G-SDI defines a 12-gigabit-per-second transmission of uncompressed, latency-free UHD 4K video at 60 frames per second on one wire. The cable operates in temperatures from -55 to 200 degrees Celsius.

GORE coaxial cables are engineered with a specialized fluoropolymer insulation to resist the effects of weather, abrasion, and confined routing spaces.

GORE coaxial cables are available in a standard size via distributors. More information is online at
